i've been hearin' a lot lately about the darkness
some people are in. the really dark darkness.
and i've been hearin' about suicide thoughts from
more than one person lately.
and i gotta tell ya, some of the stories people
carry around are so incredibly heavy, i can understand
the struggle. some of the weights that they are
living with are more than i can really even think
about. and they're living with them. and yeah, i
wonder how it must feel to carry that weight around
and here i sit and write notes and root them on
and say stay. don't go. don't let the others win.
stay with us.
the doubt creeps into my mind....
do i have a right to tell them this???
and i have to believe it matters.
i have to believe that they need to know i want them
to stay. cause i do want them to stay.
i want you to stay.
some of you i know a little bit thru notes, and your
presence has touched my life. you have mattered to me.
you have made a difference to me.
it's funny, i really don't think of myself as competitive
but over and over inside i hear myself think
'don't let the bad guys win. don't let what they did
to you win. stay with us and let love win.
stay with us and help spread love and let love win.'
and i can feel this whole huge strong streak in me that
feels it with every cell.
it's one place i feel competitive.
we gotta make love win.
stay with us and help with that..........
